Addonics Technologies has released the Sapphire Snap-In Disk Array family, which comes in a variety of models equipped with different interfaces, including eSATA, SuperSpeed USB 3.0 or mini-SAS connection.
The model, with USB 3.0 connections, allows the user to turn the four drives into a network-attached storage (NAS) device for sharing data over a network by attaching to an optional Addonics NAS 4.0 adapter.
By using the bundled RAID utility or switches on the back of the device, users can configure RAID to their specific needs. There are also Windows, Mac and Linux utilities for RAID monitoring and email notification. The Sapphire Disk Array is OS-independent for use on any system.
The Sapphire Snap-In Disk Array with eSATA and USB 3.0 interface sells for $245.
